is angela rye, political strategist and principal of impact strategies. ryan grim, washington bureau chief for "the huffington post" and msnbc contributor jonathan capehart of the "washington post." it's only the middle of february 2013 and we have a slurry of individuals, bobby jindal, marco rubio, rand paul, paul ryan, but as far as jindal goes, he doesn't seem -- he seems to be having a hard time convincing voters in his own state. he only gets something like 37% of people in louisiana who want to support him. what do you think his prospects are to begin with? >> first and foremost, i think it's a really bad idea to kind of poll or test policies on your state not paying attention to what really matters to the folks and the residents of louisiana. so i think he really has to get a better handle on what his state cares about right now. it's not school vouchers. it's not this new tax proposal he has. it's things that immediately matter like what's happening with the economy. i have no idea what bobby jindal is doing but he's a little off base here. >> that's a fair condemnation. jonathan,
meetings. joining me now are angela rye and dana millbank. is this really the master plan to save the party? >> you know, it's just so hard to keep abreast of all of ted cruz's out rages. he's been on the job for six weeks and he's already sort of rivaling joe mccarthy. you know, in fairness to karl rove, he is telling the republicans what they need to hear. and i suspect republican leaders would like to do it. the problem is you can see like a guy from ted cruz, there's no way to control him. he has this swollen sense of his own importance. and he's made -- look, obviously, he's infur rating the democrats. but even members of his own party are starting to get sore about this. they realize there's nothing they can do to control him. and they are becoming the face of the party. >> but angela, some members of his own party may begin to know it, but marco rubio is praising him as a superstar. look at ted cruz's resume. he believes sharia law is replacing american law. he believes medicaid is unconstitutional. he proposed state nullification of the affordable care act. he even thinks there's a
at the national review, here with me in new york city angela rye, good to see you as well, former executive director of the black caucus and chris smith, contributing editor at "new york" magazine. thanks for being here. >> thanks for having us. >> robert, we'll start with you down there in d.c. as we've been reporting the obama administration is preparing an immigration plan of its own. that plan could call for an eight-year path to citizenship. how are republicans reacting to this so far? >> the initial reaction from republicans, they are quite unhappy with the white house leaking this. the key to watch is how senator marco rubio floored a response. he's looking for an enforcement trigger and if the president doesn't include enforcement a lot of republicans are going to walk. >> rubio did have a response. this legislation is half-baked an seriously flawed. if actually proposed, the president's bill would be dead on arrival in congress. angela rounds, what do you make of that? >> a whole lot. first and foremost the fact that it's in draft form and it's a proposal to say that it's dead on a
of a girl shot. take a listen to what angela blake had to say about her child. >> i cannot believe this. this is ridiculous. my child was a very sweet child and to go on such a senseless manner, it makes no sense. >> how are urban centers like philadelphia, chicago, are they missing out on the conversation, the gun violence conversation that's being had in washington, d.c. as we focus on the magazine clips and assault weapons, when it's a harder fact as you pointed out that there is urban gun violence that happens every day in our cities. >> yeah, i mean the thing about hospitals, we're uniquely positioned to understand this issue. i think one of the things that is removed from this debate is a true understanding of the consequences of gun violence. and rarely is it the case that the folks that are talking about this have actually been in the room to see a young person look up at them and say, please save me, i don't want to die. then to have to go out and tell the family like this young woman's family, that the person they love the most is not coming home to them. i think if we had a b
of that group, arizona senator jeff flake, said rubio is the key to getting the job done. angela mcglowan is fox news political analyst, very well plugged in on capitol hill and knows a thing or two about this issue. is jeff flake right? is marco rubio the lynchpin? >> jeff flake is right but jeff flake is also a key player in this. he is conservative member of congress just elected to the senate when jon kyl retired in arizona. jeff flake has an interesting story that he grew up around mexican migrant workers so he understands that plight. however marco rubio is a member of the hispanic conference which is republican hispanic members of congress but also the hispanic caucus. these are more liberal members of congress. the one thing they can agree on is immigration reform the but, jon, a house divided can not stand and the senate has been a little bit different from the house as we've seen. so these two members can bring both houses together. jon: there are a number of very conservative members of the house who don't like the fact that people who came to this country illegally, walked across the
